Introducing Cheap Chick Trading Company
Cheap Chick Trading Co. is not your ordinary consignment shop. It is resale fashion and accessory shop that provides an all-embracing, fun resale clothing experience.
At Cheap Chick Trading Company, the goal is not to find clothes to make you a better person, but to help you find clothing that accentuates who you already are. It’s a place for those who are still learning to be comfortable and confident in their body shape and identity.
The resale shop will sell popular ‘what’s-in’ fashion for local young adults, teens and their hip parents. When an item for resale meets the proper criteria, they will be offered store credit and cash immediately.
A different kind of company
This type of resale business reduces landfill waste and reduces water waste.
“We want to be good stewards of resources and responsible citizens of planet earth. So it’s a sustainable model. A lot of people, especially when you hear the term ‘fast fashion’, people throw clothes away. We see a lot more people say ‘I don’t want to eat more responsibly or recycle’ but wonder if their fashion choice affect the planet, and they do. So, we can cut down on clothes that are dumped and cut down on the amount of water by keeping clothes and passing them from, one person’s closet to another one.”
Bart Styes, Co-owner of Cheap Chick Trading Co.
